07 - Arrow decided my gripe about the altered run number has merit and decided to recall all copies numbered over 5,000.

05- Anchor Bay intercepted the shipments, hijacking them so everyone will have to wait for their yet unannounced domestic release instead.

I, for one, have grown increasingly tired of super-"special" editions that come in out-sized packaging and contain pointless collectible "extras."

I just want the damned film on blu-ray.
It's region locked and it's coming out next month. Someone else posted the info a few pages back but here's the link.

They've already sent it. They aren't going to go to your house and intercept the package. It's in the mail. There are delays. I still can't believe so many people are complaining about this and blaming Amazon for something they have absolutely no control over.

If you really wanted your package right way, you would've gotten upgraded shipping and not cheaped out in the first place.

Any business that wants to succeed in sales knows the following statement: underpromise, overdeliver.

Everyone at this point has a legitimate right to be pissed. The orders were sent out as an estimated delivery time of December 22nd - 24th when the release date changed. When the orders actually shipped, everyone's shipping date was changed to January 5th. It's that date and nobody (including myself) has their order. This isn't the first winter the UK has ever had, they should know better.

I'm not asking for a refund on the entire set. No. I'm just asking for a refund on the shipping since Amazon has already failed at that.

+1. It wasn't so long ago that delivery times like this were quite common for shipping halfway around the world, anyway.

The non-upgraded price was super-cheap, too! I'm a little saddened by people who want everything yesterday and don't want to pay a dime for it.

And what, exactly, did they promise?

I'll highlight your own explanation for your edification.

Have they, now?

If Amazon has failed to pass your set through their standard delivery channels (Royal Mail), for which they usually see the kind of service which allows them to estimate a delivery date to you, I will eat your set.

Until you receive it, for all you know, it may be sitting on a shelf in a US customs clearinghouse.

I'd understand if no one got it - but plenty of people already have (though it does seem like more have not). What's up with that?

that's strange, because I got my 'Bay of Blood' alot quicker than 'Battle Royale' which was shipped supposedly the same day.

Doctorossi said it already, but this is something Amazon could never have anticipated, and it is affecting, not just their packages, but everything that shipped out of the UK during that time frame (not sure if it's still affecting the mail). They should know better? Really? I just don't get that.The wait is not going to kill you.

In other news, Amazon UK actually just came and delivered a package for me, so maybe today will be the day boys and girls.

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

I have to admit that whenever it shows up I won't be able to build up the same sense of anticipation when checking the mail.

Also, I just bought a used CD from a guy over in England. He said he mailed it out yesterday. I wonder which package will get here first?

OMG. The Anticipation.

Postman was still sorting the mail in my apartment postboxes when I left for work. The sad thing is when I get home even if I do get it, I'll only get a pick up slip (which could be ANYTHING!)

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

pre-ordered this back when it was announced and mine hasn't arrived either. got my shipping refunded though. since it's taking so long it's fun to see how much longer it will take. i hope it's like 3 months more! go for some sort of record.
